12, Decisions exercise question


#1

In the if/else statement the answer says:
var red = [0, 100, 63];
var orange = [40, 100, 60];
var green = [75, 100, 40];
var blue = [196, 77, 55];
var purple = [280, 50, 60];

var myName = "Rainie";
letterColors = [red, orange, green];
if(15 > 5) {
bubbleShape = "circle";
}

else {
bubbleShape = "square";
}

drawName(myName, letterColors);

What is the relevance of the numbers 15>5? Where did they come from and what do they represent? - I feel like I am missing something here. Thanks.

nowhere, you just created it. The exercise just wants you to implant a if/else block, to decide wether to use square or circles. You could put anything there 15 > 5 or 3 < 5 or just simple true or false, either way, if the if condition is true, your bubles will be circle shape, if the if condition is false they will be square
